-point reversal from a week ago. >>> and according to a "new york times"/cbs poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. last month the president was up one point in that state. in virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. he's now up 51%-46%. and in wisconsin, the candidates are within the margin of error after the president lost a point from last month and mitt romney gained two. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the p
of help and pull up the ticket, analysts say. and brand-new poll numbers show that mitt romney made some gains after that presidential debate. he's now leading by one point in virginia. in ohio he's still behind but up by two, and it's still a horse race in florida, a one-point spread between the president and mitt romney there. lynn? >> all right, tracie potts for us in washington. tracie, thanks. and you can watch live coverage of tonight's debate live from danville, kentucky. that's beginning at 9:00 p.m. eastern/6:00 pacific right here on nbc. >>> a week after the first presidential debate the latest nbc news/"wall street journal"/parst poll finds that republican nominee mitt romney has surged in three swing states. governor romney's largest gain was in virginia where he now leads president obama 48% to 47%, a virtual tie and within the margin of error. in florida, president obama retains a one point lead over romney, 48 to 47%. and in that key battleground state of ohio mitt romney gained two points but the president still leads 51% to 45%. >>> well, today marks one month since the
haven't really changed. this is a reference to the poll that suggest mitt romney moved up both nationally and in some key battle ground states, including some polls that show he's winning in the buckeye state. ohio for mr. romney is a must win. no republicans ever got into the white house without winning here first. the romney campaign says they're very happy with the condition of the fundamentals. they think they've dramatically shifted and the next 27 days are headed in their direction, bill. >> bill: thank you. carl cameron in ohio. thank you. >>> we're getting a new look at the stage for tomorrow night's vice presidential showdown. this is in danville, ken, southwest of lexington. you can see the debate live here on fox news channel. our coverage starts tomorrow night, just a tick before 9:00 o'clock eastern time and shep will be there, too. anchor studio b in the afternoon and the fox report live in danville, kentucky and then on your local fox station. check your local listings for that. >>> the defense secretary, leon panetta, confirming that the united states has deploy
you've seen, and the polls show it, the romney/ryan ticket has momentum. the polls have tightened in recent days following mitt romney's performance, where he obviously won that debate. there's a lot more attention here. if joe biden is able to perform very well -- and he's a pretty good debater. if he's able to perform pretty well perhaps he can stem some of that momentum, at least dampen a little criticism heading into the debate next week in new york, buy the president a little time. if paul ryan clearly dominates in this debate it will be seen very much as a one-two punch and that will just mean more momentum. >> they've been, as we call it in college, cramming. how have both of them been preparing? >> reporter: yeah. it is like cramming. i think it's sort of like going back, studying for -- one aide told me it's like studying for the s.a.t.s in the middle of a campaign. they go over a lot of briefing materials. they're brushing up on domestic and foreign policy, getting to certainly know each other's positions on everything. there's a lot of sort of time spent aalone where th
romney, for goodness sakes, mitt romney edged him in the fox poll on favorability. they've been attacking, the president and the vice president have been doing mostly attacking mostly on character, mostly personal attacks on tear opponents for five or six months. i would submit that has taken a heavy toll on the favorability and even the likability of the democratic ticket. and it looks like they're gonna have to keep it up to keep their base satisfied. but i don't know that that that's going to please swing voters. megyn: yeah. that underscores the problems going into a night like tonight. after a night like last week. chris stirewalt, thank you, sir. >> you bet. megyn: conservative and liberal bloggers are doing battle over a question of bias ahead of tonight's debate. the moderator is martha raddatz, she was chosen by the commission on presidential debates to do this. she has touched off a bit of a debate in the last few days. trace gallagher is tracking that piece of the story. >> martha raddatz is much more apt to be covering war than politics, she stopped covering the white house ba
: after several heated exchanges ryan said romney's performance last week is motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. >> reporter: as for who won it depends who you ask. instant polls taken right after the debate are mixed. in a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters 50% thought the vice president won. 31% sided for ryan and 19% called it a tie. not surprisingly both sides claimed victory. mitt romney's campaign said biden seemed off balance and strange. the president's team said the debate exposed the risk of electing a romney/ryan ticket. the candidatesalso disagreed over foreign policy. congressman ryan pointing to the death of four americans in libya as an indication of weakness abroad while biden said romney's campaign talks first before they know what the facts are. reporting live in danville, i'm randall pinkston. >>> that cbs news poll found the overall impressions of both vice presidential candidate improved after the debate. 55% think biden is somebody they can relate to. 48% think ryan is. both candidates on how uncommitted

in that key state. in the new nbc poll, no change in florida, obama by one. romney up three since the debate. romney up two in ohio, trailing by six. >> you're talking about single digits, having picked sides as a result of the debate, and romney got the advantage there. so we see a slight closing in these tossup numbers in these three critical states. >> reporter: more pressure on the number two candidates, who face off tonight. for their debate here at center college, domestic and foreign policy, biden and ryan will be seated, which normally leads to a lower energy level. from danville, kentucky, steve handelsman. >> they also came out with a poll on the senate race, showing tightening there, too, huh? >> reporter: that's right. tim kaine at 47% now, just one point above george allen at 46%. just go back a week ago, which, again, was before the presidential debates, jim, and kaine was 49 over allen's 44. a five-point spread became a one-point spad. even in the case of these two guys, both super-well-known governors, that things that happen to the top of the ticket can ripple down to senate
there in texas. i'm bill hemmer in for shepa smith. this is the fox report. governor mitt romney gaining oun idob anwxsll t rnasnein onkeers since the first debate. he has a one point lead now. that's a statistical tie. but the poll ao shows the governor's approval rating jumping four points. he now tops the president by one point there. anthis oowhthe de i danville, kentucky. congressman paul ryan arriving late today in the bluegrass state ask said he's looking forward to his prime time faceoff. >> what i'm excited about is we get to off the american people jodes onsge heeees big stages. it's my first time. but what he can't run is president obama's indefensible record. they're offering a more of the same. >> bill: tonight the obama team is asking this, quoting now, whether congressman ryan will stand by t eme pio a gno ry h o e' dishonestly try to hide his positions by telling voters the exact opposite of what he and mitt romney have run on just like romney did last week. carl cameron is traveling wh the governor. he just wrapped autopsy ral in . engyo hod omp, carl? >> yesterday when we were i
even as mitt romney is beginning to show some improvement in the polls. so you would have to say that it was a win-win for both sides. they both accomplished their goals. >> there isn't a clear winner in this debate as in the presidential debate. but it's going to be picked apart for days. thank you, randall pinkston live in kentucky. >>> for more political coverage check out our exclusive presidential forum on our website, cbssf.com. everyone day the candidates weigh in on a different issue. >>> well, some hugs and some cheers last night. the giants pulled off a miracle comeback taking three in a row from the reds at cincinnati. they move on to the nlcs and then it was the as' turn at home against the tigers. game five last night a packed house at the coliseum to cheer on the as but the star of this game was on the mound for the other team. the tigers that guy right there reigning cy young award winner justin verlander was unbelievable striking out 11 as batters pitching a complete game shutout. as only had four hits in the game and lost 6-0 in their season finale. what a team
i mean. >> reporr: with the polls tightening, the president needs to fire up his democratic base, while romney need to convert 2008 obama voters. rob, paula, last night here in kentucky, both of them got a lot of help from their running mates. >> karen, can we say there was a winner? can we call it a draw? i was looking at several polls, three gave it to paul ryan. three gave the to joe biden. was there a winner? or was this a tie? >> yeah, paula those instant reactions were showing voters were evenly split. but i think if you have to pick who really got what they wanted to get out of this debate it was vice president biden. the democrats are very happy because he basically stopped the bleeding from last weak's, the president's performance at last week's debate. he did two things very well. one, he promoted the president's policies and defended the president's record and did it by connecting with voters. and, that's not something that president obama was able to do last week. he also cam out aggressively against the romney policies by going after paul ryan very strongly. that is
. let's turn to how politicians are doing in the polls. a tight race following last week's debate. independents favor romney, in "washington times" -- and the "washington times" looks at areas of interest to registered voters and likely voters. not only did they look at the debate but they talked-about who would do a better job on a variety of issues. this includes topics like foreign affairs, jobs and the economy, and national security. this is another poll from s zogby and the "washington times ." you can see these numbers broken down by the pew research center. it shows how romney is pulling even. registered voters, the numbers a little different from likely voters. our question this morning is whether or not political spouses affect your vote. let's go to william at from florida on our democratic line. caller: good morning, everybody. much they don't do that for the ticket, but they do have an effect on the people when they talk. one thing about -- between michelle obama and mitt romney's wife was she has a sense of entitlement and more or less she was kind of disturbed about
the right way. >> i always say what i mean. >>reporter: with the poll tightening the president needs to fire up the base and romney needs to convert 2008 obama voters. in in kentucky they got strong performance from the running mate. this is danvill danville, kentucky. >> now the next presidential debate is town hall meeting next tuesday. october 16 at new york. citizens will ask questions of barack obama and mitt romney on foreign policy issues and domestic issues as well. >> developing news tonight. vallejo neighborhood under evacuation order as police search for explosives. bomb squad entered a home on georgia street and hart wood avenue. minutes ago they removed evidence bag from the home. they say they received a credible tip that somebody inside might be making explosives. earlier this evening police took a man at the home into custody though they did not arrest him. police say they found something inside that does concern them though they would not say if they found actual explosives. we have a crew on the scene. we'll bring you more information as soon as we get it. an
obama than paul ryan did for mitt romney. >> but when you look at the cnn/orc poll that asks the question, who is in touch with the problems of people like you -- this is an area in which joe biden is considered to be very, very strong, right? he is the guy who talks to the middle class, did that a lot last night in the debate. it was actually paul ryan who was ahead. the polling there was 51% for paul ryan, 44% for joe biden. doesn't that make it impossible to read that as a victory for the democrats in an area that joe biden is supposed to be really strong in? >> i think these snap polls right after the debate aren't necessarily the best snapshot of how voters really feel about these debates. and they take a look at it over the course of time and see whose facts added up and whose facts didn't add up. when you saw paul ryan really pressed on the math of their tax plan, it opened that argument all the over again. because he really just couldn't make the math work. and he couldn't explain it in a way that the american people could be comfortable with. now, he says that there'

with former presidential candidate and john kerry. romney returned from ohio to his new england home to study. various polls show he picked up an average of five points after the first debate. >> tuesday's debate starts at 6:00 p.m. it is being hill at hofstra university in new york. the format is a town hall meeting with both foreign and domestic issues. they will be undecided voters selected by the gallup organization. you can see the debate right here. this is channel 2 news. >> in the court of law. and could mean a victory. the campaign is at odds with the state of wisconsin. why romney supporters have filed a lawsuit against wisconsin. >> the city of san francisco is launch ago new effort to protect voters. george will announce a new hotline where they can report election fraud. the announcement is said to be made at 11:00. we have gotten an update on the final journey of the space shuttle endeavour. right now. there is a live look at it. it is about a mile and a half from the newt fewer home, the california science center. which is near the l.a. coliseum. but keep in mind the journey w
issue for the american people? you mentioned national security. >> well, look, fox released a poll yesterday shows the president has six point advantage over mitt romney on foreign policy, four point advantage on mitt romney on handling terrorism. i do think the american people are paying very close attention to this issue. what they're seeing in, clear successes and seriousness from the president and just reflexsive, nonpolicy, sabre rattling bluster from romney and ryan. jamie: got to leave it there. thanks so much for weighing. ladies good to see you. >> thank you. bill: some of last night's most heated exchanges happening over medicare. >> here's the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggybank for obamacare. bill: so is congressman ryan right on that? back in two minutes. victor! iot your campbell's chunky soup. mom? who's mom? i'm the giants mascot. eat up! new jammin jerk chicken soup has tasty pieces of chicken with rice and beans. you know the giants don't have a mascot right mom?
